From my experience, the guessing game does not work – at all.  We invited 140 and 85 are coming – and they were mostly local people we invited.  People we thought would come for sure (the “we wouldn’t miss it for the world” people) aren’t coming and visa versa.  Unfortunately there isn’t a good way to plan other than to realize you will have to follow up with people (good luck – we are still waiting for a few people and our wedding is in 10 days!)

We had most of our late replies be “no’s”. We had to call or email about 20 guests- some RSVP cards got lost in the mail, some people actually never got their invite… Stuff happens. I advise you to wait about a week after your deadline and then get on the phone/computer to track down the stragglers.
